Over 90% of an organisation’s workforce is working from home right now. To address the question How secure are my remote users? – join our webinar in partnership with Unisys, demonstrating how organisations with very low risk tolerance, such as US Federal Agencies that support defence and intelligence communities have secured their VPN networks and isolated home networks.

We’ll discuss:
  • Inherent problems with VPN networks & protecting critical assets
  • The current situation of corporate networks now working remotely
  • The generic increase in attacks faced by working from home
  • How to use microsegmentation to dynamically isolate threats faced by home networks
